The Muddy Choir
National Army Museum (Chelsea) - Foyle Centre 1&2
It is november 1917 and the Third Battle of Ypres is lurching towards its bloody conclusion. Young soldiers Will, Robbie and Jumbo are thrust into a landscape starkly different to the playing fields and estates of their Sunderland home.
United by their childhood oath ''nee killing, anly singing'', Robbie dreams their music will be a ticket away from the front, but attracting the attention of their commanding officers may prove more dangerous than bullets and gas.
This play is written by Jesse Briton and produced by Theatre Centre.
